Prohibits the District from imposing a charge for the storage, carriage, or delivery of the nonproject water in excess of the charge paid to the United States, except to such extent as may be reasonably necessary to cover: (1) a proportionate share of the project cost; and (2) the cost of carriage and delivery of such water through the District's facilities.
